  1. I was just looking around on the usual places and I found something that some of your students might be interested in. It is using ultrasonic standing waves to levitate objects.

    The Physics Behind Captain America's Shield

    Interesting in how it works makes you wonder how far it will go before exploding from all the energy! Boom haha.

    My infatuation with Quantum Physics: a true love story.

    Really well done i can see you really like Quantum Physics and this is way better than my blog will ever be.

    Projectile Motion

    So in this episode I take a quick look into projectile motion. We start off in Minecraft tracking the motion of a block of gravel. After setting up the experiment using a four TNT power cannon. we tracked the trajectory of the gravel and calculation from the data we know what the acceleration of gravity is in Minecraft on a projectile such as gravel. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqMm0w12nWg

    just imagine how close that spinning mechanism is from your face

    Baseball Swing

    It seems like you could really learn alot about baseball and how to perfect your technique with physics.

    Part 1

    Most of us play video games or have played them at some point. But have any of us stopped and thought how they work and how they create a program that mimics physics. The best games have their own physics that line up and work perfectly. The purpose of this blog is to investigate these physics so we can better understand how games work. Ok, so for my project I decided to go over the physics of video games, specifically Minecraft and Garry's mod. The following video goes over the force of gravity in both games to set us up for projectiles next episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqtolzxh4Js
  11. Recently students in Mr. Fullerton's regents physics class have taken up an important task, calculating the acceleration due to gravity on the surface of the earth. This question was answered in a simple manner, by dropping balls on the English classes below them. The known and accepted answer by the scientific community is 9.91 meters per second square, but did these students get that answer? The answer was not exactly that. From two students tests Ben and Gerrard the calculated value was 11 meters a second square. With a 12 percent error this may be the best these students could do with the equipment available. In the future perhaps their will be a better way for high school students to calculate this important figure but for now we will have to accept what we can get. Hopefully it was worth interrupting English classes below but that’s a story for another day. By Ben Steiner and Gerrard Caso

    Have you seen an MRI Machine spin up its all physics.

    About Me by Katie B

    I didn't find chem fun really it was really easy i hope physics will be fun too.
  15. Hey everybody well first off I just started taking physics and I can tell its going to be a great year. To start here is a little about me. I'm active in preforming arts as i am employed by my school to run sound and lights for concerts and other events throughout the year. I also am a student lighting designer/ sound engineer for musicals and plays at the school. In my free time I like to experiment with electronics, and am constantly working on a new project, I en joy playing cello, and I work for a local production company. I am taking physics because I have always been intrigued by how things work and am constantly taking things apart and fixing them. To me physics is the same i'm learning how the universe works so I can take it apart and know how all the parts work. I feel it will be a fun experience for me and I hope to learn as much as I can from the class and hope to have fun at the same time. In all I believe it is important to know some aspects of physics and hope everyone can have fun while learning in class.
